Yoga and Ayurveda are two closely related spiritual or sacred sciences rooted in the Vedic tradition of India. Yoga is the Vedic science for Self- realization that depends upon a well-functioning body and mind.
Ayurveda is the Vedic science of healing for both body and mind.
Both disciplines developed together and have always been used together.
The training delivers a complete foundation on the philosophical pillars of Ayurveda and highlights the profound connection of this ancient science with yogic philosophy.
Classical yoga and Ayurveda look to the whole human being, not only the body but also the mind and soul. Both address all our needs – from physical health and well-being to the unfoldment of our higher consciousness.
Yoga and Ayurveda address our entire nature and greater life as spiritual and cosmic beings.
The course will then embrace the functioning of the human being as a holistic system and embraces a therapeutic synergy between Ayurveda and Hatha yoga. The students will integrate practical and theoretical methods to work with body and mind.
After the course, you’ll have acquired the knowledge to customize the yoga practice to the needs of specific individuals promoting more awareness and balance in their lifestyles.
